Church. C11 core with later medieval additions. Rebuilt and enlarged 1847-8 by AD Gough and RL Roumieu who extended the nave westwards. They destroyed the south porch and west tower, replacing them with a new vestry on the north and the south tower. Further restoration in 1871 and 1888 by AW Blomfield who remodelled in 'Norman' style. Further restored c1925 and in 1979-80 by Erith and Terry. Coarsed rubble with stone dressings and flint east facade; pantiled and slated roofs. Rectangular, aisleless plan. EXTERIOR: nave with 5 windows plus 3 window C19 extension. 3 window chancel. Western porch with moulding carved in C19 Romanesque style, flanked by round-arched lancets with hoodmoulds with labelstops forming strings at the angles and continuing around the nave over similar windows. Continuous sill string. Traceried oculus above the porch. North and south elevations of extension with Lombard frieze at eaves level. Chancel with some remains of Romanesque work in north and south doorways and in part of a C13 lancet window; square-headed east window of 4 segmental-arched lights, in slightly projecting gabled bay. South tower in 3 stages: setback buttresses flanking a round-arched lancet; round-arched recess with clock above 2 arches to blind arcading; half-timbered belfry with louvred panels and tiled roof with projecting eaves. INTERIOR: not inspected but noted to contain some C16-19 monuments and a C6 altar-stone. HISTORICAL NOTE: by origin one of the very oldest churches in London, though much rebuilt, after the building in 1822 of St Pancras (New) Church, Upper Woburn Place (qv), the old church became a chapel of ease but in 1863 was reinstated as a parish church.
